The New Orleans Saints continue to shed veteran contracts.
Earlier in the day, Moore tweeted his goodbye to the city where he has spent his entire NFL career.
Thank you New Orleans for an amazing nine years. Who Dat Nation, the best on earth!!!â Lance Moore (@LanceMoore16) March 7, 2014
Moore's departure should open up more snaps for Kenny Stills, who is coming off a stellar rookie season. New Orleans also could look to fill the void in a 2014 NFL Draft that is deep at the receiver spot.
The 30-year-old Moore recorded 37 receptions for 457 yards and two touchdowns in 13 games in 2013. He's only one year removed from going for 1,041 yards.
The capable veteran could be a good second-tier wide receiver in a market that can't have enough productive route runners.
Among several receiver-needy teams that are likely to be linked to Moore, the Detroit Lions make sense. Former New Orleans quarterbacks coach Joe Lombardi took over as offensive coordinator in Detroit and admitted he's running the Saints' base offense.
